The base/bottom of the backpack is the foundation for your cat to sit comfortably in the backpack. If the base is soft, it can cause the backpack to sag at the bottom. However, if the seat is too hard, it can be uncomfortable for your cat. TARIGS backpacks have a firm, padded bottom. A cozy blanket, which your cat already knows, will make him feel comfortable right away.
Advantageous is a backpack for cats, which has a soft structure. This way you can quickly fold the bag and store it without any problems. However, make sure that the backpack does not fold due to lack of stability when your cat is sitting in the backpack.
Windows & airholes
Your new pet backpack will need plenty of windows and/or air holes. Typically, the windows are made of mesh or plastic. Mesh windows also allow air to enter the backpack. Also, your cat can see through the mesh even when the window is closed. Plastic windows are usually like an astronaut’s dome and have a few air holes. However, these models often do not allow enough air inside the backpack.
It’s best to consider now if you want your cat to walk into the backpack on its own, or if you just want to put it in. The MountainRock Backpack opens from the top, the PeakStone Backpack opens from the front. We recommend that you choose a backpack that can be opened while carrying your cat in the backpack. This way she can stick her head out and enjoy the outdoors. In any case, the backpack should also have a tether strap that can be connected to your cat’s harness.
Ultimately, you are the person who carries his cat on his back. Therefore, the cat backpack must also be comfortable for you. We recommend buying backpacks with chest and waist straps to distribute the weight on them. Also, make sure that the shoulder straps and the back of the backpack are properly padded.
